    Marlin Tank Really Full?

    I am confused with my new(er) Suzuki tank gauges. I thought I had about 70gal in my main tank and was filling up yesterday. At 10 gal pumped, it kept burping back at me like it was full. What gives? Could it really be full? PS - I would prefer not to pull the sender and do a manual/visual if...

    Pressurized Water and hot water System

    Never used either system too much, but am in a marina this year. Hot water works. Pressurized water (feeding the hot and cold system) hit a point today where it wouldnt stop pumping. Assume its out of water or has a decent leak somewhere (same thing essentially). Any thoughts before I crawl...

    Of course while taking out the steering RAM I am replacing, I spilled fluid all over the engine well. Any advice for cleaning? My local mechanic says a strong commercial cleaner...simple green type....will do the job, but then again, his boat is a mess!

    Wild storm at the mooring here in SE Ma. last night. 5-6 ft chop and rollers with downpour rain. Noticed several gallons (?) of water pumped out of the fwd bilge when I got out there today (fwd bilge float not working, operated the manual sw). Wondering if I have a thru-hull leak or the rain...

    Anyone have experience with the ACR RCL-100. Mine doesn't work. I hear the servo rotating the light, but no illumination. I ordered a couple new halogen bulbs (big bucks), but not sure that's the issue. Can I stick a VOM in the sockets to see if there's juice? If not, there's some relatively...

    Mooring Bridal Pendant for Marlin

    Hi - 99Marlin is new to me and I am setting up my own mooring. The pendant (or is it bridle?) for both bow cleats rubs on the closest under- edge of the pulpit. It will definitely wear in storm conditions. Chaffing gear will need to reach almost to the eye splice since this area on the bridle...

    Fuel Delivery

    Hi - new engines installed, and I asked them to take out primer pumps and put in squeeze bulbs. After sea trial by the boatyard, noticed one bulb collapsed and changing tanks to that engine/bulb did not relieve. Thinking there's some sort of blockage somewhere...any thoughts? Anti siphon...
